On April 17th, the Chappaqua Board of Education adopted the 2013/2014 school district budget totaling $114,828.088. The proposed adopted budget represents a $2,625,200 or a 2.34% increase over the 2012/2013 budget.
The Chappaqua PTA Executive Committee endorses the process that produced this budget and urges Chappaqua residents to vote"YES" for the budget at the polls on Tuesday, May 21st.
We made this decision after attending all of the Board of Education meetings, listening to presentations and comments from Administration, Board and community members and pursuing answers to our questions about how thebudget would affect our children's education.
